Hundreds of spiritually oriented people from the far reaches of Texas and beyond will converge at the Boerne Civic Center during the weekend of August 8–10 to explore their personal opportunities for greater spiritual growth and service. The occasion? Eckankar’s 2014 Texas regional seminar entitled, Adventures in the Light and Sound of God. The yearly seminar, sponsored by Eckankar in Texas, draws newcomers and repeat attendees alike, each enjoying the benefits that past attendees have reported—and more. Some of the reported benefits:
“When I come home from an Eckankar seminar, I know I’ve grown spiritually. That’s what I’m looking for.”
“There’s camaraderie, fellowship, and enhanced friendships with spiritually like-minded individuals. And I sure like the Friday night dance/get-together!”
“To me it’s all about Divine Love. It’s about how I can become a part of it and it a greater part of me. I can feel the great love at these seminars. They open my heart!”
“I enjoy hearing others talk about their spiritual experiences so I can see how mine fit in. Plus, I find spiritual truth being revealed in ways I can personally validate with my own experience. I like that!”
“I love chanting HU with others. What a beautiful prayer!”
“I learn new spiritual exercises every time I attend a seminar.”
“There is so much wisdom there … in the talks and in the people. My deepest life questions have been answered. At one time I didn’t know where to go for answers and my family religion failed to help.”
“A weekend seminar is a wonderful break from the everyday distractions of life. I learn new ways to live ‘everyday spirituality’ and recharge my spiritual batteries.”
The purpose of Eckankar is to make God an everyday reality in a seeker’s life. Followers don’t think of themselves as having a Soul, but rather being a Soul having a human experience. Under the spiritual guidance of a living teacher and way-shower, they learn practical ways to have real spiritual experiences through dreams, Soul Travel, and other spiritual techniques. Meanwhile, karma and reincarnation are recognized as spiritual laws that govern the spiritual unfoldment of Soul, unfoldment that leads to Self- and God-Realization.
One dominant trait of Eckankar followers is that they allow others the freedom to choose their own pathways home to God.
The seminar weekend opens with an introductory spiritual discussion on Friday night, 7:30–9:00, entitled, “Spiritual Experiences—Have You Had One?” All public seminar events are free for non-members, and Spanish discussions will be supported.
